Rain affected both formula one test locations on Monday.

Rain affected both formula one test locations on Monday.

At the Portimao circuit in southern Portugal, the action was marred by persistent wet weather, causing most teams to limit running.

McLaren, quickest behind the 2008-spec Toro Rosso of Sebastien Buemi, even fitted a higher-downforce 2008 wing to its new MP4-24 to generate more grip for the slippery surface, as Williams, Renault and Toyota also got to work with their 2009 packages.

At Mugello near Florence, meanwhile, Kimi Raikkonen got his first taste of Ferrari's new F60, doing 54 laps on the wet track before the heaviest rain set in after lunch.

"There were no technical problems with the car," a statement said.
